Docking based inverse virtual screening: methods, applications, and challenges

Biophysics Rep
PMCID: 5860130
PMID: 29577065
DOI: 10.1007/s41048-017-0045-8

[…] ug association method is beyond this review, the interested reader is recommended to read the original paper (Luo et al. ).Recently, Wang et al. () released another docking-based IVS web server named idTarget. The docking engine is maximum-entropy based docking (MEDock) (Chang et al. ), which was also published as a web server by the same group. AutoDock4RAP (Wang et al. ), an improved version of […]


Binding of mycotoxins to proteins involved in neuronal plasticity: a combined in silico/wet investigation

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5680308
PMID: 29123130
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-15148-4

[…] Chimera. For ochratoxin A, bearing a carboxyl group, two different structures were designed in which this group was either protonated or deprotonated. An inverse docking approach was performed, using idTarget (, a free web-server that identifies protein targets of small chemical molecules among the RCSB PDB database with robust scoring functions and divide-et-con […]


A theoretical study on predicted protein targets of apple polyphenols and possible mechanisms of chemoprevention in colorectal cancer

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5009435
PMID: 27587238
DOI: 10.1038/srep32516

[…] In order to identify possible protein targets for several antioxidant molecules extracted from Annurca apple, a reverse docking approach protocol was applied by using idTarget platform (, a free web-server for the prediction of possible targets for the binding of small chemical molecules through a divide-and-conquer docking appro […]


Building a virtual ligand screening pipeline using free software: a survey

Brief Bioinform
PMCID: 4793892
PMID: 26094053
DOI: 10.1093/bib/bbv037

[…] inverse screening approaches, screening a ligand against many possible receptor proteins using docking or similarity scoring to their known binders. Fast heuristic approaches for this purpose include idTarget [], TarFisDock [], INVDOCK [], ReverseScreen3D [], PharmMapper [], SEA [], SwissTargetPrediction [] and SuperPred [].Overall, current in silico ADMETox modelling and prediction methods are st […]


Elucidation of molecular targets of bioactive principles of black cumin relevant to its anti tumour functionality An Insilico target fishing approach

PMCID: 4261112
PMID: 25512684
DOI: 10.6026/97320630010684

[…] and to an available pharmacophore from a panel of pharmacophore database. Many such tools have been developed in the recent years. They include Tarfisdock [], PharmMapper [], ReverseScreen3D [], idTarget [], Target Hunter [] and ChemMapper [].In the current study, a unified approach integrating PharmMapper, ReverseScreen3D and TargetHunter to identify the potential targets for N.sativa b […]
